The Best, The Bold, and the Beautiful.
So here it is, my favourite wedding photos from the past few years.
As a photographer, when I look back I can see how my style has evolved so far over the past 8 years. I can see my rigid style 8 years ago, adhering strictly to the age old rules of posing, composition, and colour theory. I had learned well from the the masters I had apprenticed under. Over time, my style became more and more informal. I wasn’t loosening up, simply my attention was now elsewhere – the emotion. I love when couples look into each other’s eyes and crack up. The drunken kiss from the the two wedding guests as they remember their own wedding fondly. The insanity of the start of the day, that calm before the storm. Then the plunge into the ceremony. It is utter chaos. The evening stretches into itself. We grow calmer but the excitement grows.
I’m able to keep my prices where they are because of the amount of weddings I shoot. This is important to me. Every wedding I shoot, my style evolves slightly. I learn a new pose, a new lighting technique, or a new way to use old rules of depth. I get ideas to try out at the next wedding. That’s part of the reason I adore shooting weddings. They’re all different. They’re all challenging, but just the right amount of challenging.
And do I ever fall in love.
I look back on these these photos and I smile. Some may not have perfect colour theory, others may have a pose that is slightly “off.” But they are special to me. They mean a lot to me.
And I hope you love them too.
I really did put up all my wedding pictures on my website. And I swear to you, my wedding pictures got downloaded just as much as my bikini pictures.
